HEALTH & WELLNESS SPOTLIGHT

Finding the Time With Family

I

BY Patrick Metzger, Synergy Strength and Nutrition

can’t find the time… This is by far the most common answer I receive from potential clients when asking what their biggest obstacle is in the way of their success. In all honesty, it can seem difficult to organize time and find the motivation to exercise, make healthy meal planning a priority and take time for oneself. With a strong plan and the implementation of some effective habits and routines to save and maximize time, however, it’s actually easier than you think. For my wife, Carissa, and I, things were pretty easy for the first ten years of our marriage when it came to workouts, healthy meals and taking time to relax. Upon adopting our daughter, Zahra, life was turned upside down a bit. Even though our days are now filled with nuclear fallout diapers and Alexa being constantly bombarded to play “Baby Shark” and “The Gummy Bear Song” yet again, we’ve found methods that work for us to prioritize staying healthy and energized.
